Family Accommodation in Swellendam

Providing luxury family accommodation in Swellendam has always been a top priority for us at Schoone Oordt.  Family is such a precious part of Schoone Oordt’s story.  We raised our young family here for eight years while transforming and expanding the once decaying Victorian house and site into the Schoone Oordt we know today.

So welcoming growing families with young children is very special for us.  Therefore, we established the family cottage as part of our family accommodation offering when we came into business.  More recently we also added the family suite – the largest of our rooms and sleeps up to six.

These rooms are about more than just providing enough beds for large families though, we love creating spaces in which families can fully enjoy, relax and connect with each other. 

So, when it came time for refurbishments this year the family cottage was at the top of our list.  The lay-out remains unchanged – our little guests love having their own space in the loft area of this room.

However, a fresh coat of paint, refreshed woodwork and luxurious new upholstery makes a world of difference.  The bathroom was also tackled and we’re very happy with the crisp new look of the rebuilt shower.

One of our favourite parts of refurbishing is adding new decor and details to the rooms. Beautiful lighting creates a cozy ambiance, mirrors for a touch of glamour and one-of-a-kind paintings adds a personal touch to each room.

A fresh new look. The loft area upstairs in the Family Cottage makes a great hide-out for children and easy for parents to keep an eye on while relaxing in their room downstairs.

How beautiful and appropriate is this mother and son painting by Alida diTekenar in the Family Cottage.

Not to mention the sweet and super soft new throws – perfect companions for cool winter days spent sleeping in or lazing around with a good book while the children enjoy themselves in their own separate space. Enquire directly with us for great winter discounts until end of September!
